This week's bonus fishbowl went well. I have posted all the sponsored poems, and sent backchannel copies to prompters for the others.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Whole Universe Surrenders" is from the Damask thread of Polychrome Heroics. It features Damask and Macavity attempting to deal with a litter of superkittens. "These Tiny Little Steps" belongs to Frankenstein's Family. When Adam is seven and a half, he's a handful for his fathers to keep up with.

Weather here is warm, and it rained last night. Sweet alyssum, honeysuckles, peonies, iris, poppies, torenia, blue lobelia, marigolds, and petunias are blooming. Mulberries, black raspberries, and apples have green fruit. I have a whole new batch of plants to set out, just planted the grasses today.
